Hello to all! I'd like to ask for help with kind of special project of appartment bulding with several blocks, which have very irregular segment like plan - see attachment. I'm complete beginner in Revit but experienced autocad user. I'd like to create corner window family witch reacts to different angles of hosting walls... Is this possible? Or do you recomend some workaround? Project is at its beginnings, so the shape is changing a lot and so the corner windows should stay and react on changed shape of the exterior wall.I was thinking maybe for each corner one should create one window, which extends to the corner, but I wasn't able to instruct the Revit to automattically snap the window to corner (not speaking about deleting the corner of the wall...)Any hint?Thanks for any tip... Regards Frantisek Stafek

I'm not sure a window family is even going to help you. When you have a window family, there is an opening to first create a hole in your wall for your window to sit in. When you have 2 connecting walls that need a window, I think that it would only create an opening on one wall and not the other and I think you might get error messages about it not being completely in the wall. I'm not positive though. I have heard of people trying to create corner windows, but not sure if they were successful or not.


For custom stuff like that, I would prolly say an in-place window family would do it. Or maybe a generic model might work and create openings manually in your wall. I think you;d be able to do the angle parameter on a generic model just fine


That is one bizarre shaped building.

Have a look in the download section of this site and search the Revitcity Windows for a corner window by Mr Spot.

By the looks of that wouldn't a curtain wall glazing system be more suitable, that way it can be drawn at any angle you see fit...


My corner window family will work, but it would be easier with curtain walls if there is a lot of them at varying angles.

I am having this problem in a few places within my current model 

I have curtain walls meeting at an 120 degree angle and there is this little piece of wall that is not being cut-through - What am I doing wrong?

ARe those stacked walls or independent walls?

Are those two base walls really the same height?  Check in section/3D.

Are both curtail walls set to automatically embed?

Change your plan cut to cut the lower walls and check out your join options.
